Girl Charlee recently sponsored the the amazing #MonetaParty, and we wanted to share all the wonderful entries using Girl Charlee Fabrics.

The Moneta Party was organised by the Triple Stitchers - Elle (@sewpositivity,) Rach (@Rach_Wain) and Abi (@SewAbigail).

The event was a tremendous success, with 100s of people taking part all over the world, sharing their versions of the versatile Moneta Dress by Collette Patterns.
